by taking a little trip back in time. and we're going to a day in april of 1922. on the mall in washington somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 people have gathered for the dedication of the lincoln memorial. there are parades, survivors from the civil war. people drove, they walks. there was an air of festivity throughout the town. as you know, at the time -- and you may not know in this history -- washington is itself also in addition to be in the seat of the country, washington is the seat of the black elite of america. the black people who served in reconstruction governments in the south were driven out after the collapse of reconstruction, and many of them retreated to washington, d.c. we have there a pbs pinch back lieutenant governor of louisiana who comes there, the gentleman who was the senator from mississippi blanch k. bruce. we have many, many celebrities there. we have also howard university, which is itself a real seat of the black intelligence, too. so we have this town. we have this big celebration. people turn up to dedicate the memorial. the black elites who turn up, and
washington d.c. they did not have any kind of washington presence. now they all have a pretty prominent washington presence and growing. >> guest: yes. they not only did not care much about washington, they were pretty much determined to ignore government. at think it was sort of value to some extent, but there were -- they were living in this world where they thought there were changing the world by innovating . we don't have any trouble raising money. we don't have any money -- trouble attracting talent, and we can see right before our eyes that the whole world is actually changing because of the product and make. so on like those old industries here, oil, railroads, whenever, we don't need to do with the government. obviously they have legal departments that were involved in making sure they complied with regulations. you know, in the ensuing time there really built up their lobbying. even then it was many years before apple had more than a couple people here in d.c. and now, as you point out, they all have significant offices here. in some cases not only, but they actually have a li
. you're not going to hear this much in washington because most people in washington never had a real job. and don't really understand that you have to risk your life savings, risk capital, take out loans to start a business, to hire employees, to buy equipment and hoping that you'll find a customer. hoping that you'll find some business. and most people here in washington don't understand the risk that's involved and what you do to help grow the american economy. but as one who took the same kind of risk that all of you did, i just want to say thanks for what you do for our country and what you do for the communities in which you operate your businesses. listen, as you know i came here as a small business guy. i came here to fight for a smaller less costly and more accountable government. but you know many in washington just haven't quite seen the light as yet. the president and i we get along just fine. but we've got some really different views about how our economy works. as a product of the free enterprise system, i'm a big believer in the free enterprise system and in limited gov

, and the mall is at the back. everyone knew washington, d.c. could grow to the east. which mean this is congress has been wrong from our very inception. so the national mall is really our backyard, but it stretches from the capitol to the lincoln memorial and it also includes the section from the white house to the national memorial and millions of visitors will -- ground be protected and preserves for the future. each year congress has to consider potential changes and additions to the mall and deliberate how each proposal would affect this important resource and it's finite kpas by, the memorial to president eisenhower has gained significant attention and in my opinion the process has failed to achieve the design with the consensus of support. this particular situation has worked out, it's my hope that we can learn from the process, what was done well, and what we as a community can do. the committee must also consider the pace at which new memorials have proliferated in the past decade. we need to -- taken on their own, there are probably thousands of ideas that make sense, the vietnam memori

wasn't publishing its results, so it looked like the "washington post" was ahead of the fbi when all it was was reporting some of despite what i'm saying, i don't think it's denigrating the "post" to show that it was that. it didn't like to see the results of its investigation in the newspaper. but it was the newspaper's job before the election as possible. that's no small accomplishment, and i'm -- i'll be the first in line to recognize woodward and bernstein's accomplishment. regardless of whether felt leaked for self-serving reasons or the most principled one. my problem really is not the coverage in the summer and fall of 1972. it's in the book about the coverage because the book is where the fairytale starts. now i actually didn't get a chance to do this before completing my book, but i was recently in los angeles and went through the papers of alan pachula, director of the film "all the president's men." he wanted to make a film that was very true to life. so he actually interviewed all the editors at the "post," woodward and bernstein. and he was told a lot of interesting thin

, and harold washington was selected the year before. jesse jackson is raising the banner of independent lab politics. it's our time now. we want our share. than so what we have here is a split that we will see later on among those who think that this is a good strategy and those who go with sort of mondale or the regular sort of white liberal democrats. and ironically enough, most black elected officials, most of them in the black congressional caucus are opposed to the jackson candidacy but there is a rising tide of grassroots activists. jesse gets a majority ed the black vote but hardly among white voters so what we have here is this idea of using the black vote and an accumulation of delegates as a leverage to get the democratic party to sponsor these progressive issues that they seem to be neglecting in the black communities. >> host: so jackson's campaign starts in many ways like chisholm's as one might say a symbolic effort. that is, no one thought he was going to win and he himself didn't think he was going to win, but the effort was really about as you say, amassing those delegates
anything to do with each other. this is comical. i am a fan of a washington post as a newspaper of national regard, but they ought to be embarrassed for the news piece they wrote on this subject today. romney advisers fed to the washington post and the washington post then deutally rote down what they said. which is that romney and cheney, we swear, they don't even recognize each other. they walk past each other on the street and it's like, i don't even know you. they don't even talk. from the post, people who know both romney and cheney, who were talking to the washington post for, i don't don't what reason, say they have contrasting leadership styles where cheney comes off as sharp tongued, romney projects a sunny optimism. really, washington post? is that what the people who know mitt romney and dick cheney told you to say? there's more reporting. where cheney's beliefs and policies are rooted in conservative ideology, romney's tend to be driven by analytical problem sauving. this is crack washington post reporting. emphasis on the word crack, based on what they were told by romney sourc

connected with watergate and richard nixon. it didn't help that i lived in washington, d.c., during much of this period. [ laughter ] >> indeed, it was only after i relocated to the heartland that i was finally able to put watergate behind me. [ laughter ] >> and then about six months ago, my friend jen chin from the university press of kansas told me it a new book they were publishing. a new book about watergate. written by an author who would even be willing to come to kansas city on the 40th anniversary of the world's most famous third rate burglary. [ laughter ] >> which plus about 24 hours is essentially what today is. even better, it was a book that would address one of the least satisfying aspects of the whole watergate saga, namely the motivation of that shadowy source codenamed deep throat who only became known to the world at large in 2005 when mark felt, once the number-two man at the fbi, revealed that he was the guy who hung around parking garages with bob woodward. so once an addict, always an addict.

on washington. he has been arrested more than 40 times. his just written a new book called, "across that bridge: life lessons and a vision for change." he visited us in our studio and i asked congress member lewis about the voter purge in florida, where the justice department had sued to block republican governor rick scott's controversial effort to remove thousands of registered voters from the rolls, using an outdated driver's license database to ostensibly identify non-citizens registered to vote. >> it is unreal, it is unbelievable that at this time in our history, 47 years after the voting rights act was passed and signed into law, that we're trying to go backward. i think there is a systematic, deliberate attempt on the part of so many of these states -- not just florida, but all across the country. it is not just southern states. to keep people from participating. i think there is an attempt to steal this election before it even takes place, to make it hard, to make it difficult for our seniors, for our students, for minorities, for the disabled to participate in the democratic process.
in philadelphia, chicago, washington elected the year before, and so jackson is raising the banner of up dependent black politics. it's our time now. we want our share. what we have here is a split that where we fill will sit later on among those who think it's a good strategy, and those who go with the regular, sort of white liberal democrats. >> host: right. >> guest: ironically enough, most black elected officials, most members of the black caucus are opposed to jackson's candidacy, but there's a rising tide of grass roots activism in the black community. there's a majority of the black folks hardly among white voters, of course, and so what we have here is the idea of using the black vote, his accumlation of delegates as a leverage to get the democratic party to respond to the progressive issues that they seem to be neglecting on behalf the black communities. >> host: and so jack sop's -- jackson's campaign starts with a symbolic effort. that is, no one thought he was going to win. he, himself, didn't think he was going to win. >> guest: right >> host: but the effort was real in amassing deleg
, washington, dc, and so people -- jesse jackson is raising the banner of independent black politics. it's our time now. we want our share. and so what we have here is a split that -- we'll see later on, among those who think that this is a good strategy and those who go with sort of mondale or the regular sort of white liberal democrat. and ironically enough, most black elected officials, most members of the congressional black caucus are opposed to jackson's candidacy but there's a rising tide of black ac timism in the community. and what we have here is the idea of using the black vote, his accumulation of delegates, at a leverage to get the democratic party to respond to these progressive issues that they seem to be neglecting in behalf of black community. >> host: the jackson campaign starts in many ways like chisolm's, as, one might say, symbolic effort. no one thought he would win. he himself didn't think he would win. but the effort was really about, as you say, amazing -- amazing delegates and gaining inflation in the democratic party. >> guest: and putting issues on the table, issues

[ applause ] we have no problems in front of us that are insolvable. what we have is a problem with a career status quo that thinks about the next election and places its priority in their own political career ahead of what is in the best interest of this country. our founders understood that. as a matter of fact, one of the things that's not talked about much but was written about a lot at the founding was called the term rotation. only one of our significant founders didn't want to use rotation, ie term limits as part of our founding documents, and they really didn't think it was very important because back then who in the world who want to spend their life in washington, and the same today. have you to ask that question. who would want to spend their life in washington?have you to . who would want to spend their life in washington? no one should. no one should. so where we see the problem as we saw this week with the supreme court is what our founders i
